Isaiah 43:16-21

A new commandment
Forget stories of rescue
Look to the new thing!

Psalm 126 

Once there was much joy
So we will well remember
And inspire new faith.

Philippians 3:4b-14

I count as old trash
All my trophies of success
but striving Christwards

John 12:1-8

Expensive fragrance
Poured with love over his feet
A scandal for some.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
